Tutorial Details: Use of MATLAB for Computation

Date: Tuesday, August 15, 2006, 01:00 pm - 03:00 pm
Location: 585 Walter
Instructor(s): Shuxia Zhang, MSI

In the technical computing environment MATLAB is a powerful, high-level programming language. This tutorial is designed to help researchers solve some of their computational problems without spending a lot of time dealing with programming details through Matlab functions. This tutorial starts with a quick review of Matlab's syntax and I/O handlers. In addition, the tutorial will cover the use of some computational functions and toolboxes.

To enhance the tutorial, users are encouraged to contact the User Support Staff ( or 612-626-0802) with any current Matlab-specific issues. This valuable input will be used in the tutorial.

This tutorial will consist of two parts: 1) A 50-minute lecture describing the MATLAB functions 2) An optional 1-hour hands-on session focusing on the use of these functions for your application.

Prerequisites: None
